Skiers Frolic 
At Lake Flacid 

Miss Jello Junes Takes Party to 

Winter Sports Carnival; 

Ski-tow Adds to Fun 


Your Raveling Reporter (the knit- 
wit) got wind yesterday of a most 
superb winter sports carnival held last 
week-end at Lake Flacid. An uneven 
dozen rugged outdoor enthusiasts from 
here donned their rubber boots, par- 
kas, and knee-pads, to go tripping off 
from Wellesley's sunny clime to attend 
the Lake Flacid festivities. 

Miss Jello Junes, dean of the class of 
'40, was the inaugurator of the expedi- 
tion. And a competent leader she was, 
for her stability on snowshoes was 
equalled only by the prowess of Mr. 
Arthuro Snortin', the winter sports in- 
structor. The chief mode of trans- 
portation to Lake Flacid was by train, 
but several members of the party blew 
Into town with Miss Rather A. Slack- 
Ford, bruised but happy. The party 
was chaperoned by Mr. and Mrs. Mikie 
Wriggler, who said their duties were 
considerably lessened by their skiing 

Saturday's feature event was a ski- 
race in which the Wellesleyites entered 
with the greatest of busto. Among the 
striking feminine figures was Miss 
Grayskl Howardskl, whose dove-gray 
skis harmonized most botanically with 
the baby's breath she was wearing 
especially for the occasion. Miss Seal 
Swampsum of the libel department, 
keeping warm inside the skin of one 
of her Alaskan cousins, expressed ap- 
preciation for the deep fall of snow 
which made the skiing so much more 

In the male competition two audibly 
prominent figures were those of In- 
structor Arthuro Snortin' and Mr. 
Burny Ski-Heil, the only member of 
the heart department willing to tear 
himself away from Wellesley. Mr. Ski- 
Heil ranted around making candid 
sketches of the participants and shout- 
ing his name to add atmosphere. The 
athletic honors were carried off by Mr. 
How-hard E. Winners, who nonchalantly 
hummed Beethoven's Second Move- 
ment from the Seventh Symphony as 
he tore down 70-foot ski-Jumps. 

A falling vote of thanks was ex- 
tended to Mr. Fo'ward E's Pulling and 
Mr. Well-fed Haul-away, who acted 
a£ a ski-tow in getting the participants 
back to the top of the hill. Miss Lizzie 
Howell obliged by using her hygieni- 
cally-expanded lungs in announcing

Miss Carrot (Hlckie) Lark, steam- 
ship snoop for local ocean travelers, 
reports the following Wellesley sail- 

The list of the steamship Tama 
38 of the Lake Waban line leaving 
Monday, February 15, for a North 
Cape Cruise Includes Miss Mmra. Stall, 
Mrs. Sllzabeth Slodder, Miss Bamette 
Bluer, and Miss Julia O' Dorvls. Miss 
Lark reveals that these ladles make 
the trip with a common desire to es- 
cape the theoretical world at Swelles- 
ley and grapple with life on the North 

Among the passengers arriving at 
midnight of the same day aboard the 
steamship Macaita '39 from Miami 
Beach are Miss Louweez Coveracker, 
Miss Edna Muffet and Miss Judy 

Miss Dicki Burder. one of Wellesley's 
most popular debbles, was feted last 
Saturday evening at Billings at one 
of the best brawls of the season. Miss 
Mary L, Foolidge, Mrs. Mary C. Stew- 
ing, and Miss Fannie Kapp, the deans 
of the college, collaborated to make this 
one of the happiest Ave hours of 1938 
for the buds. 

Miss Burder received her guests in 
her customary brown shirt and storm 
trooper hat and this evening her cor- 
sage, sent to her by the members of 
the Spanish department, consisted of 
blue bachelor's buttons and clmbldium 
orchids which harmonized nicely with 
the blue of her eyes and the brown 
of her shirt. Standing in line with 
(he brownie debutante were, of course, 
the deans, each wearing a long brown 
night shirt out of deference to their 
guest of honor. 

Assisting at the dance many of the 
earlier debs of the season were to be 
seen. Miss Johanna Fullbeer and Miss 
Margaret Justfree of the German de- 
partment took the guests through the 
line. Little Miss Ada May Woe and 
Miss Sanita Oyesibrawl, who made her 
bow last Monday when nobody was 
looking, arranged the flowers In front 
of the organ. All the aides chose shirts 
of a nice tangerine shade to carry out 
Miss Burder's regimented motif. 

The seats had been removed from 
Billings auditorium so that there was 
ample room for dancing. Eddy Sncochin' 
at the organ kept the guests in a merry 
whirl of music between intermissions 
of half an hour. The rest of the or- 
chestra could be heard playing soft low 
chamber music In the balcony for 
those who did not wish to dance. The 
hit and run song hit of the evening 
seemed to be a tie between Night Over 
Shanghai, which was requested 301 
times, and We're in the army now, 
which was chosen for the grand march. 







The Wellesley Seniority Majority 
association, which aids indolent stu- 
dents on probation to help pass away 
the Idle hours, sponsored a benefit 
performance of that "finished" pro- 
duction, Faculty- In -Formats (?}, last 
Friday evening, January 27, in Alum- 
nae hole. 

The proceeds from this benefit will 
go towards a scholarship fund which 
has been established to provide for 
those students whose work here is of 
such a quality that their presence 
on the campus Is found to be no 
longer desirable. Beneficiaries of this 
scholarship have their choice of 
spending a year at the Ypsilantl Hos- 
pital for the insane or a week in 
Bermuda. The committee on assign- 
ing the scholarships feels that equal 
benefits may be derived from either 

Among the boxholders seen Friday 
evening were to be seen many illus- 
trious figures from around the camp- 
us. President Catherine Parker Mc- 
Afee sat in her own box looking 
bright in her lovely pink suit, as al- 
ways. Dean Gretchen Heald Coolldge, 
wearing her complete skunk coat, 
helped the president hold down the 
box. Accompanying the president 
and dean were also to be seen Dean 
Edar Fleming Ewlng, Dean Harriet 
Harrison Knapp, Recorder Frances 
Skinner Elliott, Dean Margaret Breen 
Wilson, Dean Katherine Forsyth 
Jones, and Dean Gwendolyn Wilder 


A game of Hearts will be sponsored 
by the Ladles Afraid society In the 
Court of Cower, for the mutual en- 
joyment of the French and Italian 
departments. The game is planned 
for St. Valentine's day and Miss 
Youth Spark, when told of the plans, 
tittered that she hoped M. Abscond 
de Messy-hair would feel an awful 
beating in his game of hearts with 
Babe Rlella Bozo-no. 

The Ladles Afraid society plan to 
carry out the heart motif In the 
decorations. Andree Gruel and Mile. 
Francolse Roue will preside at a table 
decked not only with cards, but also 
with love birds perched on lacy val-

Guestbailer's Team 

Losers Recuperate Following 

Love- Love Ping Pong Set; 

Winners Swipe Balls 

After a most thrilling battle in the 
national semi-mixed doubles ping- 
pong tournament, Mr. Guestballer of 
the heart department Is recuperating 
at his home. His partner Mr. Psymthe 
Is in a similar situation. Their op- 
ponents, Mr. Johnny Flunkum and 
Miss Sellen Plodsom of the Stronomony 
department, walked off with not only 
every set (score love-love, love-love, 
love-love), but also with the en- 
tire supply of ping-pong balls. Mr. 
Flunkum has recently devised a new 
method for his students in Strono- 
mony 010 In which the small white 
spheres will take a prominent part, 
representing the moon, planets, aster- 
olds, and other heavenly bodies. 

Mr. Guestballer did all In his power 
to persuade Mr. Flunkum and Miss 
Plodson from disrupting the tourna- 
ment but in vain. Mr. Psmythe's 
powers of persuasion also met their 

The first six hours of the tourna- 
ment were spent in argument and dis- 
cussion of the relative merits of the 
fountain-pen grip and the tennis- 
racket grip, Mr. Guestballer held out 
for the latter; Mr. Psmythe for the 
former. Mr. Flunkum and Miss Plod- 
som remained undecided and used 
both methods, Interchangeably. 

Following Is a blow by blow descrip- 
tion of the first 11 games: Flunkum 
leads with a left, Guestballer inter- 
cepts the blow and returns it with a 
powerful smash to his opponent's chin, 
Plodsom rushes in, hurls a straight- 
arm. It Is received by Psmythe who 
lands a swift uppercut on the paddle 
of Flunkum, 

entlne frills. "Edle" Belcher and Ban- 
gelone la Piano will vie In the car- 
diac field with Midge H. Dlddilsley. 
Those persons wishing to exercise their 
cupidity for the heart-y food will be 
welcome. Those persons more Interested 
In other angles, or Is it curves, of 
the heart situation, are urged to show 
their Interest with reservations. Call 
Loveland O O U 2 and signify your 
Intentions to "Cupld-with-the-bow"

Miss MacFeefee 
Emerges At Tea 

Swellesley's Attractive Deb 

Employs College's Males 

for New Receiving Line 


Musto I. Squealrighr, Bessie Common 

Preside Over Refectory Table 

in Glamorous Regalia 

Wellesley socialites enjoyed the big- 
gest event of the season Sunday 
afternoon, January 30, when pretty 
Milly MacFeefee made her bow to 
society. "Wellesley has been pre- 
sented with many things." said Miss 
MacFeefee, "buildings, books, paint- 
ings, doors, and now me." 

The spectacular event was held In 
the ballroom of Alumnae hole, the 
walls of which were banked with 
flowers which had been received by 
the charming bud. The east wall 
was dressed In a species of under- 
water flora recently raised by the 
botany department. The botanists 
wrote that they hoped the contribu- 
tion would suit the motif of decora- 
tion chosen by mik$ MacFeefee, but 
added that that was all they had on 
hand anyway what with the Januai. 
thaw and all. 

Although not her original plan, 
Miss MacFeefee, with the tact for 
which she Is famous, wore a black 
serge and taffeta Annette Kellerman, 
worn In past years by Mrs. Durant 
when bathing In Lake Waban. The 
arrangement not only saved the bot- 
any department considerable embar- 
rassment, but lent a touch of the 
traditional to the scene. Miss Mac- 
Feefee carried a bouquet of cosmos 
sent by the philosophy department. 
Always a creature of contrasts Miss 
MacFeefee altered the customary pro- 
cedure for debutantes, cast tradition 
aside, and had a stag line receive 
with her, which included Dr. Teddy 
Stagger, Mr. Freeland Jinx, Mr. John 
(Is everybody happy?) Fair, Mr. Alfle 
Shufflefield, and Mr. Holmes Sweet 
Holmes, all clad In white ties and 
stuffed shirts. 

The group made a pretty picture as 
they stood among the potted plants 
In the north corner, black and white 
against a soft background of Mr. B. 
Wary Greene, playing variations on a 
theme from Dipsydoodle on the mighty 
gas-pipe organ. 

The room was a kaleidoscopic pic- 
ture of beauty and color, as the many 
gaily dressed faculty and students 
moved about three quarters of the 
room (one quarter being left for a 
modern dancing class that someone 
forgot to change). 

Among the debs present were: Misty 
Bank, the star of many a Junior 
league show, who drifted In In a 
cloud of tulle, simply cut to provide 
diaphragmatic control; Miss Dlckl 
Burder, In a brown shirt and storm 
trooper hat— ("It vas raining und 
helling ven I left," she said). Miss 
Hidebetter wore a simply cut shroud. 
"I wouldn't be seen dead in this," 
she said. Mr. Con Cocter arrived in 
his bathrobe and had to be sent home. 
"I cant seem to remember clothes and 
cues," he sighed. 

Mrs. Musta L Squealrlght presided 
over the tea table, simply attired in 
a blue slip. Opposite her was Miss 
Bessie Common of the heckonomlcs 
department, clad In a stock model 
with surplus profits.

Special Writer Appraises Faculty 
Show Disagreeing With Drama Critic 

The entire student body attended 
the stupendous performance of Fac- 
ulty-ln-Formals(?) last Friday night 
at Alumnae hole. Wellesley's faculty 
deserves the highest commendation 
for the unusually fine production of 
one act plays which constituted the.r 
quadrennial histrionic appearance. 

First of all Misty Banke deserves 
great credit for her spendld Job of 
directing. She also showed excel- 
lent taste particularly in the costum- 
ing. The green pompon on Miss 
Chew C. Wilson's hat was most effec- 
tive In revealing her personality; 
Miss Chew C. played the role of Mrs. 
Hopley In The Long Distance Call. 
To mention other flowers Mrs. Letlt- 
snow Phyatt's pink and blue wreath 
added a delicate note to her portrayal 
of an exemplary wife and mother. 

The quartet or Klrbys gave a pro- 
fessional performance, trained In 
Misty Banke's Worse Squeaking choir 
by Juanita Pane of the screech de- 

Particularly outstanding was the 
performance of Horace Sequelra's 
Witch Doctor. During the course of 
the play It became Increasingly ap- 
parent that both Miss Dorothy Menace 
and Miss Mmm Stall had missed their 
respective callings. 

Mr. B. Wary Greene's Interpre- 
tation of the young lover, Miss Milly 
MacFeefee's appearance as Mr. Jinx' 
wife, Mr. Con Cocter In both his 
roles and Ml&s Hay Wart's miracu- 
lous transformation Into little boy 
Arthur did not go unappreciated. All 
In all Faculty-ln-Formals(?) was an 
appropriate prelude to the next two 
weeks of unadulterated bliss for both 
the faculty and the students.

Parlor Pounce is a relatively stupid

must be played on the floor and only 
during exam period, preferably Im- 
mediately before. It takes a great 
deal of vigor, so a pound of fudge 
should be provided along with a pack 
of cards. The rules are based en- 
tirely on Individual whims. The scor- 
ing is done with toothpicks on a 
window screen. The prizes should be 
nebulous and ethereal, preferably 
smoke rings.

Another column carries a review of 
last Friday's production by the Fac- 
ulty players of Faculty-ln-Formals ( 1 ) , 
a series of one act plays, a review 
which will do ample Justice to the 
felicities of the performance. Surely 
the college community has every rea- 
son to be grateful for the rare op- 
portunity of seeing in performance the 
otherwise staid and solemn mentors 
of Wellesley's academic atmosphere. 
Students of human psychology in gen- 
eral and of academic psychology in 
particular are aware of the sharp dif- 
ferences between the Impression made 
by a professor in his lecture from the 
scholar's rostrum and the same pro- 
fessor revealing his unconscious half 
on the theatrical stage. I wish there 
were space here to dwell upon this 
grateful aspect of our late revels. 

But mine Is a more thankless task, 
undertaken in the best Interests, I 
hope, of the cause of the drama at 
Wellesley. I have referred to the 
revelation of a professor's personality 
on the stage in the above paragraph. 
I cannot help but wish that the 
revelation, unconscious though it was, 
had been made with an eye to its 
effects not so much on the students 
(they know us too well) as on the 
general public, which will Judge the 
faculty on the merits of that astonish- 
ingly crude performance last Friday. 

First, I object strongly to the In- 
clusion of Adolf Hitler in no matter 
what form or shape or size In the cast 
of a supposedly respectable play, The 
Long Distance Call. I believe both 
Clarence and Professor Con Cocter, 
who played the role of Clarence, would 
rebel at any association no matter how 
informal with Der Fuhrer. Even 
though the faculty discard its form- 
ality for the legitimate stage it should 
never for one moment forget its high 
task of developing among students a 
critical appreciation of elevating 
drama. No one of any intelligence 
would connect Hitler with that func- 

It seems to me also that green pom- 
pons and pink and blue flowers rather 
overdo the haberdashery and millinery 
effects In costuming the play. Was It 
a matter of carelessness or ignorance 
that Mr. Phyatt referred to a map of 
Massachusetts In ascertaining the way 
to Newark? But perhaps the crudest 
mistake of all was the inclusion of the 
quartet in The Happy Journey. To 
sing Is one thing but to warble with- 
out any concern for pitch, rhythm or 
tune is quite another. In view of long 
years of experience I must continue 
to Insist, wearily as It may be, on the 
use of trained voices In musical Inter- 
ludes or on their complete exclusion 
altogether. The greatest dramatists 
have also Insisted on trained voices — 
Shakespeare and the Greek tragedians. 

If the faculty plays are to be given 
publicly, and I believe they should be 
so given, then they must be given as 
well as the faculty knows how. Surely 
we know better at Wellesley than to 
have other half-baked, melodramatic, 
crude charades.

It's your favorite snoop, folks. 
Flash I bringing you the slander of 
Flash! the day. Scandal while It Is 

scandal, culled from the lives 
of the Swellesley faculty. We see 
nothing, hear nothing, know nothing, 
and tell all. 

It Is rumored that a certain 
TskI eligible young bachelor of the 
Tsk! heart department has been sup-

has been hinted that he has built his

Illustrates Own Utilitarian Theory, 

Rules of Dynamic Symmetry; 

Emphasis on Decoration 

Mr. Tom Referee entertained with 
a delightful housewarmlng on Monday 
evening, January 31, celebrating the 
completion of his new home. The build- 
ing Is, Mr. Referee explained, designed 
according to laws of dynamic symmetry, 
and Illustrates his own theories of art. 
Outwardly, the small brown cottage 
does not resemble the cathedral at 
Rhelms, but Mr. Referee admitted to 
his friends that It has the same balance 
and emotional appeal. "Or perhaps," 
he continued, "a smaller monument 
like Salnte Chapelle." 

The house laces a court, and has 
large casement windows facing a brook, 
an Interesting vista enhanced by the 
rhythmic line of birch trees. Mr. 
Referee's guests were enthusiastic In 
their praise of the game room, where 
a strenuous bout of tiddly-winks di- 
verted several of the more apathetic. 
Oak colored walls are used upstairs, 
and in the guest room, modernistic 

Mr. Referee's charming dog, Betty, 
received with him. She made a lovely 
picture, the creamy mopplshness of her 
luxuriant coat catching the accent of 
cream dots in the brown wall paper of 
the living room, the cream-colored 
curtains and couch, and vividly con- 
trasting with the cool Jade green of 
the deep-piled rugs. This room Is 
centered about a surrealistic painting 
over the fireplace. Mr. Referee claims 
It Is a nude. 

The dining room Is designed on the 
perpendicular; this theme Is reflected 
In the striped curtains and the absence 
of chairs. The bedroom, on the other 
hand, Is in the best horizontally 
Romanesque tradition, having two beds. 
Several guests were heard to remark 
upon the unusual amount of closet 
space and the convenience of the 
kitchen, detecting a feminine hand 
(possibly Betty's) . 

Delicious refreshments, Including 
thin slides of the lesser known 
Italian painters on toasted English 
roll colls, were served by Mr. Referee 
to his many well-wishers.

The meal was complemented by A
